Joshua Tree Elopement

Alyssa + Jeremy

Originally being from California; yet never experiencing Joshua Tree National Park until having been an Oregonian. Funny how things work out sometimes! Alyssa + Jeremy are two adventurous souls that a Joshua Tree elopement was an undeniable choice. I mean; they have no shortage of spontaneous and exciting camping stories!

Striking rock formations, barefoot in the desert, the faint scent of cactus flowers catching in the breeze. We adventured all throughout the Park, catching the hazy sunset at Keys View. Feeling connected to the rugged vastness of Joshua Tree and the great outdoors was such an important part of their day. We are such advocates for our couples to make their elopement all about them! And that of course includes a location that stands out to you.

Our National Parks are truly national treasures, and can be such a beautiful and wild choice of eloping! With 61 National Parks and counting, what a lovely way to pay homage to the protected natural landscapes around the country.

A few things to be aware of when considering eloping in Joshua Tree, Yosemite, North Cascades or anywhere in between:

• Most National Parks require a permit for an elopement or intimate wedding. Each Park is different, so we recommend checking their websites!
• Some Parks have road/trail closures due to weather or other events, depending on the time of year. It is always best to research what locations will be accessible on your date!
• A photography permit may also be needed, depending on what National Park you decide! Each respective website can be helpful when navigating any fees.
• This definitely goes with eloping anywhere in the great outdoors, but some great policies to keep in mind are the Leave No Trace Principles. Practicing smart, considerate and responsible ways of enjoying the outdoors is helpful and sustainable for us all!
